SUPPMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    The Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number is the nine-digit 
identification number assigned by Dun and Bradstreet Information 
Services to an establishment. The Government uses the DUNS number to 
identify contractors in reporting to the Federal Procurement Data 
System (FPDS). The FPDS provides a comprehensive mechanism for 
assembling, organizing, and presenting contract placement data for the 
Federal Government. Federal agencies report data on all contracts in 
excess of the micro-purchase threshold to the Federal Procurement Data 
Center which collects, processes, and disseminates official statistical 
data on Federal contracting. Contracting officers insert the Federal 
Acquisition Regulation (FAR) provision at 52.204-6, Data Universal 
Numbering System (DUNS) Number, in solicitations they expect will 
result in contracts in excess of the micro-purchase threshold and do 
not contain FAR 52.204-7, Central Contractor Registration. The majority 
of offerors submit their DUNS through CCR as required by FAR 52.204-7, 
and not under the FAR provision at 52.204-6.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    The estimated annual reporting burden has been adjusted since 
published in the Federal Register at 74 FR 37991, on July 30, 2009. The 
adjustment is based on use of Fiscal Year 2011 Federal Procurement Data 
System data, and consideration for the fact that the majority of 
vendors are required to report their DUNS number into the Central 
Contractor Registration per FAR 52.204-7, and not FAR.204-6, as 
required by this information collection.
    Respondents: 38,679.
    Responses per Respondent: 3.
    Annual Responses: 116,037.
    Hours per Response: .02416.
    Total Burden Hours: 2,804.
    Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the 
information collection documents from the General Services 
Administration, Regulatory Secretariat (MVCB), 1275 First Street NE., 
Washington, DC 20417, telephone (202) 501-4755. Please cite OMB Control 
Number 9000-0145, Use of Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) as 
Primary Contractor Identification, in all correspondence.
